Flint Owl Bakery Shop

Went in for the first time yesterday and bought the most amazing brownie I have ever tasted! Have been a fan of their bread for a long time. I wonder if they will succeed with all the competition from other cafes for lunch / takeways. Perhaps the bread will ensure survival. Anyway - good luck to you Flint Owl and thanks for such fantastic bread (and brownies!).

Yes, hopefully the bakery will do well. The bread is excellent. Haven't tried the brownies...yet!
Also very fond of Owen at the bus station and all his yummy baked goods and their coffee is fab too. Space for two real bakeries in the town?..

Forfars will close as the bread there is rubbish. Good luck Flint Owl.

FO coffee is very good, very moreish. Not tempted to buy a sandwich for £5.25 though, that's quite a lot of dough, get it!
Tried the sausage roll at £2.80, very tasty and all meat, no gunk to pad it out as you get in other s.rolls.
I like it and will keep trying FO out. I am a DFL (17 years ago), there you go, I said it!

I have to admit to going back today and having a piece of the gingerbread. Fantastic. Yes, it is pricey - but it is b****y lovely! A friend of mine says she is addicted to their chocolate and marmalade tart! I'm beginning to sound as though I'm being paid by them - so will stop!

Given that last time it was mentioned, there were various predictions about the cost of a loaf, I am interested to know what the prices for bread are like. Eg, the most basic, I should add that I am someone who is happy to pay more if it is worth it, (and won't pay if it is overpriced for what it is) and I also like cheap square sliced white too. I consider them different food products.

Indeed. Would like to know how accurate I was before. Can't go and look myself as I'm away skiing.

Local you are a bit late as there is now a thaw. You need to go north.

Just bought massive slice of spinach and feta quiche for 2.95 - the price of prepacked sandwich from some supermarkets. Straight out of the oven, still warm by the time I got home, scoffed the lot. Absolutely delicious, very filling and well worth it.
The large white bloomer was 3.00 and I'm certain is not full of sugar and salts and thw foam like dough that passes for bread at some outlets. Happy to pay it.

Lewes is beautiful and I have been considering moving there for a while. I am now thinking of buying a place on Friars... more
